We do not live in a world of possibilities, we live in a world of impossibilities. God did not make a world where there is war, hate, violence, and the very idea that a child can starve is not only ridiculous, but perposterous according to Higher Laws. If this is true, then why do we believe it?

Rev. Cheril Goodrich 2828 Barkman Waterford, MI 48329 248.673.9471 IMPOSSIBILITIES As we look out into the world, we see many situations that make us give pause and wonder how these situations can exist. We see war, starvation, atrocities, addiction, rage, murder, molestation, insecurity, unhappiness, hate, fear, guilt, sadness, shame, loneliness, disease, retardation, death, destruction, car, plane, boat and train accidents. All of these, the above-mentioned and more, are the creations of this world. We, as a society, abhor these situations and hard as we try we make little impact, if any, on these seeming imperfections that we have to put up with while we dwell in this world. Over and over we look for solutions that never seem to be quite the answer. Since the beginning of time, the things that have plagued mankind still seem to plague him and bring him pain. Perhaps we need a different perspective. A different way of looking at an old problem will perhaps bring a new perception into our awareness that has not been open because it seems an unlikely answer. This perception opens a new way of seeing, and because we do not open ourselves up easily to a new ways thinking, it may be a perception that is not readily accepted. All of our “new thinking” encourages us to open up to new possibilities, and this is a good thing for us to do, but what about all of the situations in the world that are not open to new possibilities? These are the situations that have gone on for centuries and all of the new possibilities have not made much of a difference. What needs to be done to correct these unhappy conditions that exist? Is there an answer that will help us better understand how correction can happen? We do not live in a world of possibilities; we live in a world full of impossibilities. When we were created we were never meant to experience the impossible situations that we experience and see in the world. Our mind, or the essence of our being, was not created under such duress. Because it was not created to experience such things, it is constantly trying to make corrections. These corrections are impossible to make because from a spiritual standpoint, or from the aspect of our higher mind, they do not exist. How can we correct something that in reality does not exist? It seems to be real in our own mind, but in truth it is impossible. When we deny what we are, which is Love, and go about trying to correct something that does not exist, we focus our attention away from what is real. This leads to frustration. It would be like trying to convince a thirsty man that a mirage is not really water, it is an illusion. We will never heal starvation by focusing on the disease; only focusing on Love will heal it. Love is real, the disease of starvation is not, and therefore it is impossible to heal what does not exist. By looking at anything that is impossible to solve, we delay the effects of Love. This is the same as asking; what does 3 + 3 have to do with the solution of 6 or what does the problem have to do with the solution? The answer is that without a problem there would be no solution. But even if there were no problem, the solution would remain the same. We do not get an answer by looking at the problem, and even if we do look at the problem, the answer remains the same. When we try to make the answer something other then 6 it is wrong. Love is the 6 and also the solution to the problem of starvation. When enough of us look only at Love instead of the starving people of the world, the impossible situation will be solved. Does this mean that we do nothing? No, it means that we only look at the solution or Love. If we are inclined to give, then give. If we do nothing except look at the power of Love, or what is real, we accept that Love has the power to heal our mind of this impossible situation. It is our mind that needs healing. Energy flows where we put our attention. Put it on the solution, not the problem. For every problem there is a solution. The question of what is real and what is not real has to be answered in time because in eternity there are no such questions. Love answers all calls and when there are enough of us calling on the Force of Love in time, Love will be extended into time and heal the problem of starvation. We are the ones that must turn away from the power of starvation and return the power in our own mind to that of Love. This is true of any situation that seems hopeless. When we observe something that does not seem like it will ever get solved, we must begin to acknowledge that it is an impossible situation. By this I mean that it could not possibly be real. Then call on the Power of Love to heal our mind of believing that this is real. When we try to fix something that isn’t there we buy into the illusion or the unreality of time and we choose impossibility.
